With his trio of touchdowns Sunday night, Wilson improved his his stellar December resume to 46 touchdowns (with just 15 interceptions) since 2012 as the Seahawks improved to 18-5 in December games during Wilson's tenure.

Russell Wilson threw three touchdown passes and Wright and the Seattle defense held the league's No. 1 offense to a season low in points as the Seahawks won 24-10. He had five receptions for 84 yards to pace the Seahawks receiving corps, and got back to his productive self as the Seahawks get ready for a push to the postseason.

The win kept the Seahawks (8-4) within striking distance of the Los Angeles Rams (9-3) in the NFC West, with a critical division game against the Rams in Seattle two weeks away. The Seahawks host the Rams in Week 15.

Meanwhile Wentz, the MVP frontrunner, was held to just one touchdown while totaling an 86.2 passer rating, almost 18 points below his season average.

A 10-play, 80-yard drive in the third quarter gave the Hawks a 17-3 lead.

The Seattle defense came up big against Wentz in the third.

The biggest mistake by Wentz came when he tried to get the ball into the end zone and fumbled on the one-yard line.

A holding call on Alshon Jeffery went a long way toward taking four points off the board, coming as it did at the tail end of an 11-yard run by LeGarrette Blount that would have given the Eagles a first down near the Seahawks goal line (instead, they ended up backed up on the 14). Wentz threw a lovely pass to a streaking Agholor on third-and-long, and the Eagles finally made the game interesting at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Despite completing the 32-yard pass, Wentz underthrew Agholor. The loss is the Eagles first in nine games.

As in the first half, the Seahawks immediately made the Eagles pay for blowing their opportunity. The Eagles had owned the period better than any team, leading the National Football League with 78 points and allowing just 18.

Seattle was thin on the defensive line after both Dion Jordan (neck) and Nazair Jones (ankle) were inactive. Recently signed Dannell Ellerbe became the Eagles' third starting middle linebacker of the season. He had four catches for 61 yards Sunday night.

Without their three Pro Bowlers on defense, the Seahawks are leaning harder than ever on Wilson.
